CJ-8 frame plans?

I'd like to fab my own Scrambler frame, but I'm not having much luck in finding a copy of the plans specific to the CJ-8 posted anywhere. The plans that I've found, http://www.geocities.com/Yosemite/1740/frames.html
are for the CJ-7 and 8 combined, and are incorrect. The plans show the CJ-7 and 8 as having the same wheelbase. Does anyone have any idea where I might find a copy of CJ-8 frame plans online?

Actually, in looking at the CJ7 and Scrambler frame specifications you'll note that the difference is in dimenson <font color="red"> H </font color>. The difference in the wheelbases is determined by the length of the Wheel Arch section as described in the frame plans.

It is correct.

Re: CJ-8 frame plans?

Now I'm confused. I was looking at dimension <font color="red"> S </font color> which shows the spring hangers to be the same distance apart on the CJ-7 and CJ-8. That can't be correct since the CJ-8 wheelbase is ten inches longer, so I must be missing something?

Something aint right there?
I have a buddy with a scrambler that I can measure this weekend, if I can catch him when he isn't wheeling.
I'll report soon.
